Just Love Me For Me

Just love me for who I am,
not for who you want me to be.
I only know how to be me
and not change into someone else.

Don't ask me to become some fantasy
that will only cause someone pain.
That is not love to me.
To change into someone I'm not.

For what purpose could that be,
when all the will happen is hurt.
So it is best to accept me as I am,
and not someone that will never be.

I would not ask you to change
into someone else.
Someone that is not you,
so please don't ask that of me.

I am who I am.
You are who you are.
Just love me for me.
I will love you for you.
